Webinar #1 Planning Instruction with Proficiency Scales
Jeffco Proficiency Scales Webinar #1, in the first of the series, school leader, Marazno consultant and Colorado native, Tammy Hefflebower, will take us on a deeper dive into standards based learning through proficiency scales.
Essential to standards-based learning is the use of the standards to identify, for teachers, students, and parents, what the students must know and be able to do by the end of the learning. This places what happens in the students’ heads at the center of everything pedagogical in the classroom. Perhaps the biggest paradigm shift for the teacher in the classroom is away from the notion that there is a substantial amount of content to work through in a school year toward the notion that there is a set of standards, including factual knowledge and sets of skills, that he or she must develop in students. The content is there as the vehicle to develop those standards. The sequence of dealing with the content will likely be very similar to what has been traditionally taught, but its purpose will be different. This webinar discusses how to plan instruction in a standards-based learning environment. It provides detailed guidance about how to understand the learning progressions within proficiency scales. It then discusses how teachers can use their proficiency scales to create and sequence cohesive lessons and unit plans to optimize student learning.
